Testing, testing....!

When it came to testing the printable Sticky Fabri Solvy by Sulky of America on cotton fabric, I decided to work on a cute stitchery project from Bird Brain Design.  Nothing like getting a head start on my winter projects. ;o)

Here you have the stitchery Snow Happens with the Fabri Solvy

And there you don't
I certainly found it easier to stitch on cotton fabric as opposed to the heavy towel weave. I was actually able to do my continuous stitch from the top as opposed to the up and down I mentioned on a prior post. This leads me to conclude that the heavy weave of the towel is the problem and not the Fabri Solvy.

However, where the product over lapped from the joining of the two sheets, I did have to work one movement at a time.  I also found that if I did not have the fabric in my hoop taut, it actually made it easier to stitch.

In conclusion, if you are looking to cut back on your hand embroidery prep time, I would recommend this product.  It will certainly cut back on stitchery preparation and allow you to get to work on your favourite project in no time!

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for the review -- it sounds like a great product. Those snowmen are super cute too!

That does seem like an easier way to do stitchery, especially with large pieces.

The Christmas quilt is great - I love the traditional look of the stitchery.

Do you sew through this "paper" and then wash it away?
